Q. Do I need to install a drip irrigation filter? - YES! Designed to filter out rust, sand or debris, installing a drip irrigation filter is necessary to protect your emitters from clogging over time. Even if your drip irrigation system is connected to your household water source, installing a drip irrigation filter is a low cost solution to protect your investment.
Filters: aka Hose Filters & Drip Filters: Drip Irrigation Filters are installed between the hose vacuum breaker and pressure regulator and protects drip emitters, soaker hose dripline, sprayers and bubblers from rust, sand, silt and other impurities that may clog them over time. Our drip irrigation filters have removable and replaceable screens that come in 120, 150 and 200 mesh. Most household water source connections will need either a 120 or 150 mesh filters. Drip irrigation systems that draw water from a well will need either a 150 or 200 mesh filter. Proper water filtration is important to the efficient operation of drip irrigation systems. Drip Irrigation Filters are not designed to operate under static pressure and must be installed after any valves, timers or faucets to operate properly.
*Filters are available in 3/4" Hose Thread (MHT) and 3/4", 1", 1-1/2" & 2" Pipe Threads (MPT)

Drip irrigation is a watering method which delivers water to plants slowly and right where they need it at the roots. Where typical pop-up sprinklers spray water into the air and onto plants, drip irrigation systems combine flexible poly drip tubing and drip emitters or "drippers" to both conserve water and save money.
Drip irrigation systems are not affected by wind and will greatly reduce evaporation and runoff common with traditional irrigation systems. Drip irrigation is the perfect solution for raised vegetable garden beds, hanging baskets, and potted plants.
